Digg Inc., once the media darling of the Leftist Huffington Post, was at one time, a social-media pioneer once valued at more than $160 million.  Today it is selling for the deeply discounted price of about $500,000 – basically worthless, and I’ll tell you why that is the case.

Like CNN, NPR, and AirAmerica, Digg is proving once again, that mainstream America, tech-savvy America, is not the leftist haven as HuffPo and other rabid leftist bloggers who flooded Digg with nasty posts, imagined it to be.

In a free market, the cream rises to the top, the best products are innovative and responsive to user demands (Apple), the success of some media over others clearly is a reflection of its audience and their preferences.  We now know, without a shadow of a doubt, that Conservative Talk Radio has grown, while Air America (the Left’s attempt at liberal radio programming) is struggling to stay on the air.  CNN’s skewed programming has left it but a shadow of it’s former self due to abandoning fair and balanced journalistic reporting for a Leftist point of view.  Viewers and listeners can discern when they’re hearing slanted reporting.  And I think Americans are basically intelligent enough to be distrustful of government bureaucrats and politicians.  So when media outlets defend, support, promote and even advocate for one candidate over another, it’s clear that viewers will walk away.

Americans don’t want to be force-fed a big-government agenda, especially not by the media (once heralded as the 4th Estate and protector from all evils of government). Instead, mainstream media, and their Social Media henchmen, like Digg, have become nothing more than a propaganda arm for Big Government advocates like President Obama and the Democrats.

Americans are distrustful of government by nature.  So even when a new phenom social media and news-sharing site like Digg shows up, people are attracted by its novelty & it’s potential as a source of news dissemination.  Instead, Digg became the propaganda arm of the LEFT (Democrats, Socialists, Obama etc.).  It was only a matter of time when it’s demise would be imminent, much like Air America and now CNN.

Lesson to be learned:   Sites purporting to be one thing (impartial disseminators of news), while in reality, became whores for the Left’s Socialist agenda (which is inherently anti-American), are doomed for the dustbin of history, and in this case, made Digg a worthless entity, and a real find for the bargain hunting investor.



Sarah Palin brilliantly delivered her speech at the Republican National Convention tonight, saying that being a mayor is sort of like being a community organizer, except that you have actual responsibilities.  As governor, she stood for reform, stood up to lobbyists, and even fought corruption inside the Alaska Republican party.

Sarah Palin is a reformer and a maverick, like John McCain.  She is for family, energy independence, and is going to Washington for the right reasons, not to mingle with the “right” people or media types.  When Sarah Palin walked on stage, she received a standing ovation that lasted more than 10 minutes, something that neither Democratic nominee experienced during their convention.  

Sarah Palin hit a home run with her speech tonight.  She showed brilliance, humor, integrity, commitment, love of country and family, and showed strength and resilience in light of the recent stabs by the leftist media about her personal life.   She is a breath of fresh air, the future of politics, not the stale stench that comes from Joe Biden’s do nothing Congress and his front man, a man of no experience, a man who wrote to memoirs, yet not one important piece of legislation has he authored.

And here’s a little history lesson – anytime a woman has broken through the glass ceiling, it was more often than not, a woman on the right, a conservative – like Margaret Thatcher, Kay Bailey Hutchinson, Carly Fiorina.
